Denver, Jan. 17, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Swimlane, a leader in security orchestration, automation and response (SOAR), today announced the company closed 2018 with record revenue and staff growth, the addition of a European presence and increased customer acquisition velocity.

Swimlane revenue has grown by 544 percent since the beginning of 2017, and the company finished 2018 with the three strongest quarters in company history. Last year alone, Swimlane nearly tripled its annually recurring revenue (ARR) and doubled its staff size. 

“Cyberattacks are not going away and are only increasing in sophistication,” said Cody Cornell, Swimlane’s co-founder and CEO. “Our rapid growth is the result of our commitment to empowering security professionals and meeting the global need for effective cybersecurity solutions that remove the burden from understaffed and overworked security operations centers.”

The company added new customers in financial services; local, state and federal government; professional services; managed security service providers (MSSPs); energy and other sectors with continued international expansion with a presence on four continents.
